Police: Toddler dies after 3½ hours in hot day-care van

🕐 1 min read

HOUSTON (AP) — Police say a 3-year-old boy has died after being left in a hot day care center van for 3½ hours parked outside the center in northwest Houston.

A statement from the Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office says the child was found unresponsive when his father arrived at Discovering Me Academy about 7 p.m. Thursday to pick him up. The van was parked since 3 p.m., and deputies said its interior was 113 degrees when they arrived.

The child was pronounced dead a short time later at a hospital. An employee was questioned, but no charges were filed.

The academy had been cited in 2015 for not reporting a wreck involving the van in a timely manner and for a driver not knowing how many children were in her group.
